Winter NAMM 2011 Recap

It was an incredibly successful, enjoyable and generally busy winter NAMM show this year! We had all sorts of artists visiting the booth to hang out and sign autographs. Everyone from Steve Gorman (Black Crowes) to Chris Pennie (Coheed & Cambria), Giovanni Hidalgo to Jojo Mayer, and Peter Erskine to John Dolmayan (System of a Down) came by.

D’Addario booth, which featured individual brands including Evans Drumheads, Rico Reeds, Planet Waves Cables & Accessories and D’Addario Strings, was based around a club layout- complete with a stage full of instruments and accessories. Jojo Mayer’s drum set was showcased on the stage with his Evans G Plus coated white tom heads and Hybrid Coated snare head.

Evans artist Mark Guiliana and his group Beat Music put on a fantastic performance at the Sabian Live evening party during the show. Jojo Mayer came up to double drum with Mark Guiliana at the end of the set- quite the cool thing to witness!

Evans Drumheads was pleased to announce several new products and expansions in addition to a decrease in the price of drum set heads!

The long awaited 26” EMAD
You’ve asked for it and now you’ve got it! In addition to the 18, 20, 22 and 24” sizes, Evans Drumheads will now offer a 26” EMAD. The 26” EMAD offers a powerfully unbeatable BOOM that is sure to shake the stage.
